To be fair, Waltz was better than Leo. So was Samuel Jackson. If I was to be totally honest I was a little disappointed in both the character of Calvin Candie and Leo's portrayal of it. I guess I was expecting another Hans Landa. Jackson's Stephen made up for it though. So many dimensions to that character.

Alan Moore on comics:

They've lost a lot of their original innocence, and they can't get that back. And, they're stuck, it seems, in this kind of depressive ghetto of grimness and psychosis. I'm not too proud of being the author of that regrettable trend.
